Hello, I'm Chris. Thanks for seeking us for help.
Below are the diag steps for your code, just open the files, those steps are not to diagnose that little part called the can vent, because the RCM has not stored a trouble code for this part.

You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.
Thanks Chris

You can purchase this part from your local dealer, however your code does not say this part is bad.
